One of the tallest in the world

Be sure to visit on a clear day to enjoy the views from the top. The glass bottom observatory at the 100th floor is a must visit but it is definitely not for the faint-hearted.

Visited the location and travelled to the top of the "bottle opener" building. 1550 foot above the ground, spectacular views, although was a bit nervous of walking on the glass floor that far from the ground - fantastic experience

Spent the entire afternoon plus happy hours: a lot of shops and restaurants to chose from. Kids had enough fun things to do as well. A must visit spot in Shanghai, which is being taken good care and in mint conditions. Considered a good venue for meeting people for a quick drink or family gatherings.

I opted to visit this tower of the three tallest Shanghai buildings on a clear night. I highly recommend visiting one of the three towers at night and this one made the most sense as it is the furthest back from the river of the three. We entered around 8:30 pm and there was almost no wait to go right... More

walked here from the TV towers and the skyscrapers tower over you - great photos on sunny day! The raised walkway makes it safe away from the traffic and noise.

Views from this building are spectacular. From the observatory, you can get a 360 degree view. Tips: Obviously don't go up on a cloudy day and avoid rush hour times because the building gets very crowded.

Though we didn't go way to the top, hence the lack of 4 stars (to be fair), due to a few of our family members' health limitations. In fact, a sign lists blood pressure issues as a caution, in addition to a few others. But for one of Asia's top 5 tallest buildings (as of now lol), quite an amazing... More

Staying in Lujiazui

Neighbourhood Profile
When people speak of Shanghai’s futuristic skyline, it’s the financial district of Luiazui they are speaking of. Shanghai’s most iconic buildings are located in close proximity to Lujiazui’s elevated ring road and swanky eateries. Sky-high shopping and chic bars fill the highrises around the area. As is characteristic of a world-class financial business district, some of Shanghai’s best malls and hotels can be found in the neighborhood. While everyone on the famous Bund side of the river gazes in awe at these amazing structures, all the buildings here, as well as Lujiazui’s riverside promenade, offer great views of the historic buildings all along the Puxi side. The Lujiazui park often hosts music festivals throughout the year, and park goers can party and stroll in the shadow of some of the world’s tallest buildings.
